Subject: Correct intro note
I thought this was fixed years ago by OTRR:
The actual United Press reporters did not play themselves in this series, according to Walter Cronkite, who was interviewed about the program on NPR.
They were still off in the war zones while the programs were made by (NY?) studio actors, sound effects folks, etc. , with scripts based on stories the reporters had filed for use in U.P.-subscriber newspapers. The series was a U.P. promotion in its lively competition with A.P.

And, for Cronkite's sake, spell his name right!
